Umnitza product?

I am interested in getting a set of projector headlights for my E39 , and was wondering if anyone had dealt with Umnitza product before and how the quality and fit and finish of their product is. Also do they look the same as Oem when installe don the car. I tried looking at the gallery on their website and i can't get a good look of the side signals, and how similar they are to stock.
these are the particular headlights i am looking at

Umnitza is the company to deal with IMO...

Very fast to respond, and very polite... Any questions or problems and they'll answer them quickly.

Go ask on DTMPower, they'll all rant and rave about how great they are (especially product wise).

Honestly, I've heard mixed reviews.

Apparently their Angels Eyes dont work in the cold, their X-Tec HIDS are no better than Randy's McCulluoghs (Umnitza's just cost more), and people have had trouble with Umnitza before... check BF.com vendor feedback section.

Bought someone E34 projectors with HIDs, don't know too many places that sell projectors with HIDs and ignitors and pnp wiring for under $600...

Can't comment on the angel eyes, but I know there's two guys out here in cowtown with Umnitza DDEs with no problems even in our -20* heat...

Honestly, I don't like the bluish colour of those angel eyes, if you were to get projectors for your E39, I'd prefer the colour of the OEM.

Bad comments are out there but to be fair, Matt and Umnitza have recieved plenty of compliments too.

Not sure about the lights yet but so far i have been impressed with their service

The product is great but the customer service lacks, it's not the greatest. I'm sure people have had numerous easy transactions with them but mine was sort of a hassle.

Don't have your doubts tho. You will get your product perfectly fine.
